Founded in 1995, Vulcana Circus is Queensland’s oldest women’s arts organisation, taking its memorable name from a Victorian era strongwoman who was once known as the strongest woman in the world.
Since moving to Brisbane Powerhouse in 2000, Vulcana has been interacting with the community through bold performances and programs meant to empower and educate.
A West End local, Manning is an experienced facilitator, trainer and performer, her notable acts including her Ernst the Clown character. Phoebe and Vulcana are partnering together for the new circus workshops and hoping to continue the work Phoebe has done in recent years to keep West End circus alive.
Steeped in rich cultural arts history, West End has been the foundation for some of Queensland’s best-known circus companies for decades.
Vulcana are currently holding circus workshops two days a week.
Monday night Circus Play for adults is bound to get your week started in a playful, exciting and safe way, and Thursday afternoons will allow for kids aged 5 to 7 and 8 to 12 to explore and discover what their bodies can do and grow at their own level and pace!
